This page was created to share some of my creations to enhance the Strat-O-Matic experience, mostly for the Card and Dice players.  I am a Strat-Veteran of almost 30 years, however returned recently from about 15 years off.  Check out my long term 1989-1990 NHL Replay if you have a chance: 1989-1990 NHL Replay

I have created team labels for Strat O Matic sets, and also in the process of continuing to create them for all my sets of Baseball, Hockey, Football, and Basketball.

In doing so, I borrowed a lot of content from the painstaking work of others.  Information was taken from wikipedia as well as:

https://www.hockey-reference.com/https://www.pro-football-reference.com/https://www.baseball-reference.com/

As far as logos, uniforms, and other patches and flair, they can be found at: (check them out!)

http://www.gridiron-uniforms.com/ for a great reference in pro football uniform history

Sports Logos for a great database of sports logos and uniforms

Dressed to the Nines – Baseball Hall of Fame for MLB uniforms

 

The attached are pdfs of each season labels I have created.  Personally, I use Avery labels, and these are printed on 5″ x 7″ sheets.  You can do what you wish with them, but if they are printed larger, I am unsure what the resolution will look like.  When printing, make sure any ‘fit to page’ box is not checked.  I use Avery 5450 labels for these.  Some people have been able to print these labels directly on envelopes.
For card storage, I use #6 coin envelopes for older baseball seasons, #7 for hockey.  For seasons  that contain many extra players and pitchers’ hitting cards, the teams may get snug so I have moved to #7 coin envelopes other than older baseball sets.  I have found that over time, teams will kind of form the envelope to its size, but I cannot vouch for the long-term storage effects on the cards as I just starting using these last year.
I place the team in the envelope, then carefully put the label on.  I reinforce each side of the label with 1/2 strip of scotch tape (extending just past the corners) because the label will flare up where the envelope bends with the cards and it will lose adhesion.
When playing, I prop the cards up somewhere to add some more flair.  The baseball sets also have weather and ballpark information for quick reference.
Please contact me with any comments, concerns, corrections, or requests (although I am committed to finishing my sets first).  Contact

Strat’s Description:

Highlights

  • Oilers sweep Bruins for Cup in Gretzky’s final Edmonton season
  • Lemieux leads eight 50-goal scorers with 70, leads NHL with 168 points
  • Calgary sets pace with 105 points; Flames ROY Nieuwendyk scores 51

Full Summary

Wayne Gretzky scored 62 goals, led the NHL with 109 assists, won the Conn Smythe Trophy when his Edmonton Oilers swept Boston to win the Stanley Cup for the fourth time in five seasons, then was traded after this year and never won another Cup over his final 11 seasons.

Neither Boston, led by Ray Bourque and 42-goal scorer Cam Neely, won their divisions, but needed only five games each in the playoffs to oust their division winners.

Calgary, which led the NHL with 105 points and 398 goals, got 51 goals and 92 points from Calder Trophy winner Joe Nieuwendyk, 50 goals and 102 points from RW Hakan Loob and 48 goals and 103 points from center Mike Bullard.

Los Angeles also had twin 50-goal men with Jimmy Carson (55) and Luc Robitaille (53), but was no match for Calgary in the first round of the playoffs.

In the East, Montreal’s 103 points topped Boston. Goalie Patrick Roy, defenseman Chris Chelios and 50-goal scorer Stephane Richer led the Habs.

Mario Lemieux’s 70 goals and 168 points were good enough to lead the league and earn him the Hart Trophy, but his Pittsburgh Penguins were a last-place team in the Patrick Division.

The six carded teams in this set are Stanley Cup winner Edmonton, Cup finalist Boston, 105-point Calgary, 103-point Montreal, division winner Detroit and the division-winning New York Islanders.

Strat Description:

Highlights

  • DEE-Fense: Giants’ D dominates high-scoring Bears for NFL title
  • Running Wild: Gifford, Matson, McElhenny, Ameche, Casares star
  • Righteous Rookies: Johnny Unitas, Bart Starr, Lenny Moore, Sam Huff

Full Summary

Carded teams: New York Giants (8-3-1), Chicago Bears (9-2-1), Detroit Lions (9-3), Chicago Cardinals (7-5), Washington Redskins (6-6) and San Francisco 49ers (5-6-1).

Frank Gifford led the Giants in rushing, receiving and scoring. But it was the top-ranked defense that made this team famous. With an impregnable DL of DE’s Andy Robustelli and Jim Katcavage and DT’s Rosey Grier and Dick Modzelweski, hard-hitting rookie MLB Sam Huff and Hall-of-Fame DBs Emlen Tunnell and Jimmy Patton, the Giants yielded the fewest yards, the fewest yards per rush and led the NFL in sacks (32).

That defense stifled the Bears’ league-leading 30-point-per-game offense in the title game, which New York won, 47-7. The Bears had league rushing leader Rick Casares (1,128 yards, 12 TDs) and WR Harlon Hill (1,128 yards, 11 TDs), who averaged 24 per catch.

The Bears reached the title game by beating QB Bobby Layne and defensive-minded Detroit (Joe Schmidt, Yale Lary, Jimmy David, Jack Christensen) in the regular-season finale.

HB Ollie Matson (1,524 all-purpose yards) and DBs Linden Crow (11 INTs) and Night Train Lane led the Chicago Cardinals to their last winning season. HB Hugh McElhenny and FB Joe “The Jet” Perry carried San Francisco.

Highlights

  • Esposito, Hull, Howe first ever to 100-point seasons
  • Cup finals: Montreal sweeps St. Louis 2nd straight year,Boston (100 points), New York (91), Toronto (85), Oakland (69)

Full Summary

About time: The scoring inflation expected with expansion took place in the second year of a larger league with a longer schedule, now 76 games. Phil Esposito, the first to a record 100 points this season, topped the league with 126. Teammate Bobby Orr was the first defenseman ever to score 21 goals, as Boston finished a strong second (100 points) to Montreal (103 points and a record 46 wins). Too bizarre: Future HOF goalie Tony Esposito made his debut – with Montreal – and the first two goals he allowed were by brother Phil.

This season IS currently available for purchase from Strat-O-Matic: 2020 Baseball Cards and Additional Players

Strat’s Description:

Highlights

  • Dodger Days: LA Finally Wins Another World Series
  • Pandemic Play Ball: MLB Manages 60-game Season, Despite Obstacles
  • The Best: MVPs Abreu, Freeman; Cy Youngs Bieber, Bauer

Full Summary

If both the add game parts and include Red Box options are selected, the Red Box will replace the green Baseball box that would otherwise come with the game.

      A 60-game season is not what anyone had in mind but playing at all was a victory for Major League Baseball. Strat-O-Matic’s re-creation of this unique season offers many opportunities for gamers:

  • Test your managerial strategy with MLB’s new rules (universal DH, 3-batter minimum for relief pitchers, designated runner to begin extra innings).
  • 60-game seasons put complete replays within reach for gamers who lacked the time for 162.
  • Denied a minor-league season, many highly anticipated prospects went directly to the Major Leagues, earning their first SOM cards to enliven replays and drafts.
  • Cards for almost every player with at least 30 at-bats or 20 innings pitched.

The 2020 season created its own drama on the field. The Los Angeles Dodgers’ .717 win percentage led four teams playing at least .600 ball and conquered 34 years of frustration by winning their first World Series since 1986. They added superstar Mookie Betts to a formidable lineup and enjoyed an enviably deep pitching staff led by veteran Clayton Kershaw and young fireballers Dustin May, Julio Urias and Tony Gonsolin.

First basemen Jose Abreu of the White Sox and Freddie Freeman of the Braves slugged their way to MVP awards. Freeman was second only to Washington’s Juan Soto (1.185 OPS) among four men who topped 1.000 in OPS. The Yankees’ Luke Voit needed only 60 games to crush 22 HR (Abreu was second with 19 and first with 60 RBIs).Teammate D.J. Lemahieu won his second batting title at .364. The amazing 21-year-old Soto did a Ted Williams imitation by leading MLB with .490 OBP and .695 slugging.

Cleveland’s Shane Bieber was the unanimous choice for the American League Cy Young after leading MLB in wins (8-1), ERA (1.63), strikeouts (122) and an eye-popping 14.2 K/9 innings. He had plenty of company:10 starting pitchers exceeded 11 K/9. Atlanta’s Adam Fried went 7-0. The Cubs’ Yu Darvish was 8-3, 2.01. Cincinnati’s Trevor Bauer won the NL Cy Young with a 1.73 ERA and a stifling 0.795 WHIP.

Full Summary

Hitters performed with more than 5,000 HR. But young pitching stole the show. Florida’s Josh Beckett shut out the Yankees in the final game of the World Series. Kerry Wood and Mark Prior were 1-2 in NL strikeouts and nearly got the Cubs into the Series for the first time since ’45. LA’s Eric Gagne had a record 55 saves and a 1.20 ERA while fanning far more (137 in 82 IP) than he let get on (57).

Full Summary

Last year, the Red Sox ended its World Series jinx since 1918. This time, the White Sox ended theirs dating to 1917, by sweeping Houston. Though the long-ball still dominated, the World Series combatants were the best at pitching and playing small-ball. After four prodigious seasons, St. Louis’ Albert Pujols finally won his first MVP award in his fifth by hitting .330-41-117. Can’t get enough? Here’s more.

Strat’s Description:

  • Penguin Power: Pittsburgh wins its first Stanley Cup
  • Golden Brett: MVP Hull scores 86 goals
  • Playoff Surprise: 68-point North Stars ascend to Cup Finals

Full Summary

The six carded teams in this set are Stanley Cup winner Pittsburgh, Stanley Cup finalist Minnesota, division winners Chicago (106 points), Los Angeles (102 points) and Boston (100 points) and Norris Division runner-up St. Louis (105 points). A utility permits printing the other teams. As always, the Windows version of this season will include all teams.

Five teams topped 100 points, but 88-point Pittsburgh won the Stanley Cup. Super Mario Lemieux played only 26 games in the regular season, scoring 19 goals and 45 points, but returned to play 23 playoff games, where he won the Conn Smythe Trophy for his 19-goal, 45-point performance. He had serious help from 40-goal scorers Mark Recchi and Kevin Stevens.

After the Penguins eliminated 100-point Boston to reach the Cup finals, they met with upstart Minnesota, a sub-.500 team. Edmonton, with the league’s top scorer in Wayne Gretzky (163 points), had sent Calgary and Los Angeles, the top two teams in its Smythe Division, home and Minnesota had done the same to the top two in its Norris Division, Chicago and St. Louis – then routed Edmonton in five games.

This season had many individual stars, too, especially Hart Trophy winner Brett Hull, whose 86 goals for St. Louis were the second most for a season in NHL history. Theoren Fluery, Cam Neely and Steve Yzerman each scored 51 goals; 16 others scored at least 40. Ten men topped 100 points.

This season IS currently available for purchase from Strat-O-Matic:  2018-2019 Hockey Cards and Additional Players

Strat’s Description:

Highlights

  • Paint the Town Blue: St. Louis wins first Cup in historic playoff season
  • Lightning Flash: Tampa Bay wins 62 in season, none in playoffs
  • Lamplighters: 13 score 40+ goals in highest-scoring year ever

Full Summary

The NHL had never seen anything like it. First, all four division winners and six of the nine 100-point teams did not survive the first round of the playoffs. Tampa Bay’s historically great regular season (NHL record-tying 62 wins, league-best 325 goals) ended with a historically disastrous playoff (first team in the 52-year expansion era to fail to win a playoff game after leading the NHL in points).

That unequalled misery set the stage for the season’s feel-good ending: The St. Louis Blues, a last-place team on Jan. 1, won its first Stanley Cup in its first finals appearance since 1970, the early days of expansion.

The regular season offered plenty of individual highlights:

  • Alex Ovechkin leads the NHL in goals (51) again, but only one more than Edmonton’s Leon Draisaitl in a season that had the most goals in NHL history. Thirteen men scored at least 40 goals.
  • Tampa Bay’s Nikita Kucherov won the Hart Trophy and the scoring title (41-87-128) above a group of six superstar 100-point men: Kucherov, Connor McDavid (116), Patrick Kane (110), Draisaitl (105), Brad Marchand (100) and Sidney Crosby (100).
  • Despite the flurry of goals, Dallas’ Ben Bishop’s .934 save percentage topped nine qualifiers with .922 or better.
  • Louis’ rookie goaltender, Jordan Binnington (.927 save percentage), led the NHL with a 1.89 goals-against-average, a bit better than Bishop’s 1.98, before starring in the Blues’ surge to the Cup.

Strat’s Description:

Highlights

  • Cardiac Cardinals: Classic comebacks capture NL crown, then World Series championship
  • Season of the Pitch: Verlander, Kershaw win pitching Triple Crowns in year of record Ks
  • Brains and Braun: Small-ball tactics, slugging MVP Ryan Braun lead offenses

Full Summary

Many called the final day of the 2011 season the most amazing pennant-race conclusions in baseball history. Atlanta and Boston suffered historic collapses. Tampa Bay’s Evan Longoria joined Bobby Thomson of the 1951 Giants as the only players to hit walk-off home runs on the season’s final day to send their teams into the post-season. And St. Louis completed its climb from eight games back in September. Then, in Manager Tony LaRussa’s swan song, the Cardinals topped that by becoming the first team to twice survive elimination when it was down to its final strike in the World Series. This was a terrible Texas Two-Step for the Rangers, who twice stumbled in its second straight World Series dance.

The final fireworks followed an explosive season that showcased Derek Jeter’s 3,000th hit, Jim Thome’s 600thhome run, Matt Kemp’s near batting Triple Crown and the most spectacular pitching seen in decades. Detroit pitching ace Justin Verlander (24-8, 2.40, 250 Ks) was the American League MVP. He and Dodger Clayton Kershaw (21-5, 2.28, 248 Ks) won pitching Triple Crowns for leading their leagues in wins, ERA and strikeouts. Overall, runs, home runs and batting averages were at 20-year lows and strikeouts were at all-time highs. But 2011 had its share of tough outs: That Cardinals’ modern-day Murderer’s Row of Albert Pujols, Matt Holliday, Lance Berkman and David Freese, for instance. NL MVP Ryan Braun (.332-33-11) and slugging teammate Prince Fielder led Milwaukee to a division title. Toronto’s Jose Bautista (43 HR) and the Yankees’ Curtis Granderson (41) blasted away. Detroit’s Miguel Cabrera (.344) and the Mets’ Jose Reyes (.337) won batting crowns. Boston had batting title runner-up Adrian Gonzalez (.344) and MVP runner-up Jacoby Ellsbury (.321-32-105).
